An
array of memorial items – wreath, flowers, candles, assign, and a ghost
bike – have appeared at the intersection of Washington Ave. and Manning
Blvd. to commemorate the death on November 24 of Paul Merges.  Paul,
45, was the father of two, Sean and Keara.  His funeral was on November
28, 2012.

There will be a dedication this Thursday, December 6 at 5:30 PM. 
Please meet at the ghost bike (northeast corner of Manning and
Washington).  For those coming by car, there is parking on Roosevelt and

welcome.  Afterwards, there will be a short “ride of silence” in Paul’s
honor.
